This news contains references also to other Substances

The Center for Environmental Health (CEH) has discovered the presence of bisphenol A (BPA) and perfluorooctanoic acid (PFOA) in various textile products. Products that did not have warning labels regarding Proposition 65 were issued with legal 60-Day Notices. BPA, a hormone-disrupting chemical, was found in athletic clothes made of polyester/spandex blends, exceeding safe limits and potentially causing health issues. PFOA, another concerning substance, was also detected in textile products. Both BPA and PFOA are listed in Prop 65 and are considered harmful to human health and the environment. The CEH has sent legal notices to companies, giving them 60 days to address the violations before potential court action. Under Prop 65, businesses must provide warning labels for chemicals that may cause cancer, birth defects, or reproductive harm.
